Hacker News Nation: Episode #1

It’s showtime!

Today I’m pumped to share our first episode of Hacker News Nation!

Students often ask me, “What do I use to to keep up to date with tech trends?” Y Combinator’s Hacker News has been THE place for about 5+ years now. The only problem? There’s too much content! (And if you’re not a developer then the stories are missing context.) That’s why we’re here…

Each Friday for the next month, Mattan and I recap the top stories from Hacker News for that week. Check out our very first episode.
